Hi,

If I am pregnant, I would be approximately thirteen weeks. My appetite has increased a lot, and I am bloated a lot of the time, I have also gained weight. And I have fatigue, headaches and I have notice that my breasts are bigger and heavier and slightly tender.
But my periods, or whatever they are, have been abnormal. I have been having my period for five years now and they are regular but if they are late, it would be about two days late at the most. The last two times, they have been late by nearly a week. And they have been lighter than my normal period. And they do not last that long, about four days. On average, my periods normally last six days.
Do you think I should take a test?

Thank you

I say you should take a test. You're describing your period as something you would have when you are pregnant. If your period blood color is pinkish that's a high chance you are. And all those symptoms you've listed are just one of the many symptoms of being pregnant. However pregnancy and period symptoms are fairly similar.

Im going through the same thing you are..ive had abnormal periods for the last couple months. I would say you should go to the doctor...ive never been pregnant that i know of but think i may have miscarried back in aug then sept came and smptoms started back again with abnormal periods. I usually have 5 day periods but have been having 2-3 day ones ..very light and then brown discharge though i wouldnt know how far along i was. Ive taken a couple tests because my last period or whatever it was ..was a week late. It too came back neg but have a strong feeling that i am pregnant. Im going to see my doctor tomorrow and he may do a blood test which is the most reliable i hear. Then again sometimes not. I had a friend who was in and out of the doctors because she thought she was pregnant and they ran tests on her for months...after 8 months they finally confirmed her pregnancy..the next month she had a baby girl. Also you could try testing again but early in the morning and try not to drink alot the night before as it can delute hcg in urine. I hear the dollar store tests are very good. I wish you luck. Take care

Thank you so much. I think I'll go to the docs next week. I have heard of women who are pregnant and the home pregnancy tests can't pick it up.
You take care too.
